This week, clipping. announced their third album, There Existed an Addiction to Blood.
clipping. is a hip hop trio of rapper Daveed Diggs, and producers William Hutson and Jonathan Snipes. They have been notable for a more experimental approach to the genre and, rather than sampled beats or live instrumentation, utilize found sounds, industrial metal remixes, and static.
They've also been masters of the music video. If you want to fall down a music video rabbit hole, check out their channel.
Daveed Diggs has been making a name for himself as an actor in recent years, writing and starring in last years Blindspotting, and landing a role on the TV series Snowpiercer.
I assumed that Diggs may be taking a break from music to focus on his acting, but was pleasantly surprised when There Existed an Addiction to Blood was announced Wednesday. The announcement came with a new song, "Nothing Is Safe." The album will be released on October 18.
